Ezra Pound: A Close-Up 210 pp. "Ezra Weston Loomis Pound (October 30, 1885 ? November 1, 1972) was an American expatriate poet and critic who was a major figure of the Modernist movement in the first half of the 20th century. His own significant contributions to poetry begin with his promotion of Imagism, a poetry movement which derived its technique from classical Chinese and Japanese poetry to stress clarity, precision and economy of language. His later work, spanning nearly fifty years, focused on his epic poem The Cantos."Keywords: EZRA POUND BIOGRAPHY LITERARY POETRY CLASSICS LITERARY CRITICISM AMERICAN POETS
